  2. I realize that this may not be the best place to leave this comment but it’s now been over three months and counting since we lost Tom Petty . Been listening to a lot of TP since he left us even discovering many obscure songs and deep cuts that I never really paid much attention to when he was alive . Songs like Free girl now . The Wild one , looks like I’ve been fooled again (don’t like it ) runaway trains and many more , all great gems , one of the best songs he ever wrote and recording though was Dogs on the run from southern accents . The song would make Dylan envious. Lyrically complex and spell bounding. Whether Tom performs it in fast rock fashion or slow acoustical as he did often live it will make you realize what a great singer/songwriter/ performers Tom was . Of all the greats we have lost the last few years . This one continues to sting the worst. (At least for me . Miss you Tom RIP

  3. Thank you ! Good to see Jerry ” Warble ” Jeff Walker on your site ! Year 1978 there was in Finland a music- magazine named Musa, in there was country-writer , Named Ori Mattila ( a city which name it is -Orimattila) Stallion Matthew ! Ha ha ha ! He called Jerry Jeff Warble, because Jerry Jeff bought a village, population 3 people, recorded live-record there !

  4. Thank you Mudshark and BigO for this! I heard the Original Broadcast back in 1969. David Bromberg’s Lead Guitar Work was Phenomenal. I’ve seen references to this over the Decades but this is the First Download. Thanks again!

  5. While wandering the web looking for the actual broadcast date (no luck yet!) I found the the version of Bojangles on Five Years gone came from a 1967 appearance on WBAI, not this one. There were no references to Dead Men Got No Dreams coming from a radio broadcast so that one may be clean as well, but the evidence is stronger for Bojangles.

    FWIW. As always thanks for the great music, especially the stuff off the beaten track.
